Product Overview

Get ready for a saddle-bustin' double dose of "The Duke"! Included in this exclusive Double Feature DVD are two feature films from the late, great John Wayne. Dark Command and A Lady Takes A Chance are two Wild West romances that are sure to rein you in!

Dark Command: John Wayne is good guy Bob Seton in Raoul Walsh's star-studded thriller set in the dark days before the Civil War. During this strained period in America's history, emotions run high and tension fills the air, especially during political contests. In the race for Federal Marshal of Kansas, Seton defeats William Cantrell (Walter Pidgeon), causing increased animosity between these two powerful figures. Their mutual ill will peaks when Cantrell steals Seton's girl (Claire Trevor), manipulating her into marriage to get even with Seton. Their rivalry reaches dangerous proportions when Seton exposes Cantrell and his guerrillas who have been raiding both Union and Confederate lines. Roy Rogers co-stars in one of his earliest film roles.

A Lady Takes A Chance: Finding men had never been a problem for city girl Molly Trousdale (Jean Arthur) finding the right man is another matter. And women have never been a problem for cowboy bachelor Duke Hutkins (John Wayne) until they want to marry him. If it's true that opposites attract, they're obviously made for each other. When Molly sets out from New York on a cross-country bus tour, she just wants to see America. But her plans take an unexpected turn out West, when she collides (literally!) with Duke while he's competing at the rodeo. He assumes she's just another pretty gal who'll fall into his arms, but she's a lady who won't be roped easily by a brawling, rough-and-ready cowboy. Jean Arthur shows the spunk that made her one of the biggest stars of Hollywood's Golden Era, and John Wayne is at his most charming when he falls for her against his better judgment. So get ready for the dust to fly when these two screen legends star in a truly classic romantic comedy, A Lady Takes A Chance!

Reviews
ReviewSource Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Review [Dark] Dark Command, budgeted at over 700,000 dollars, was the costliest and biggest box office hit for Republic--a studio known for its cheapies, B-Westerns and serials. Raoul Walsh directs in a lively manner; it's based on the book by W.R. Burnett and it's scripted by a team of writers...It's a fictionalized version of the story of William Clarke Quantrill, a ruthless guerrilla masquerading as a Confederate officer who loots and burns towns down, but in the film he's called William Cantrell. Walter Pidgeon plays the raider as an urbane ex-schoolteacher who seeks wealth to marry a banker's daughter and improve his impoverished mom's (Marjorie Main) lot in life, who pretends to be his housekeeper Mrs. Adams so as not to embarrass him. Any historical value is negligible, but the fast-moving tale makes for an entertaining hokum story.
